Here’s the secret Fort Worth location planned for Chicago’s famous Portillo’s


Portillo’s isn’t ready to reveal where they’re building a Fort Worth location, but city snoopers know.

According to a recently filed city building permit, the Chicago-based chain known for Italian beef and hot dogs plans to open a big store  at 2491 North Tarrant Parkway at Tehama Ridge Parkway  Bud Kennedy at the Star-Telegram first reported the news.

When I met up with a high-placed Portillo’s rep at Portillo’s “Beef Bus” food truck (which recently toured DFW to gin up buzz for the company’s first area location), she told me the company planned a fast-paced, broad roll-out of Portillo’s restaurants across DFW. The first one in the area is now under construction at 5752 Grandscape Blvd., in The Colony.

That means more leaks to come…
